Look Doc, They're Retractable!
Today was the day for my latest doctor's opinion. Notice that I use the word opinion. I just think that there aren't enough medical facts out there. This doctor's appointment was rather quick as the first words out of his mouth was "oh yeah, definitely looks like a hernia." "See this area here is a little puffy." I continue to show him that the area isn't puffy and that my testicles like to play hide-and-seek. After coughing for him a few times he said that it isn't a hernia but a deep skin cyst. (That's 3 different opinions for those counting.) He did say that we can wait and see if it shrinks down on its own or "we can go numb the area now and extract it." I told him it'd be better to wait. So, I'll be going back to the other doctor on Monday to clear me to go back to work on Wednesday. Can't wait to see how this all pans out but rest assured that it will all be based on solid medical opinion.
